few big containers, or lots of small containers?
    #3601677 - 01/09/05 03:23 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

i am plannin to case for the 1st time...and i want to build a fruiting chamber like they show in this tek here: http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/26177
i read that to get bigger mushrooms and more weight...it is better to use a lot of substrate up to a foot deep.....but this would mean less available vertical space.
what i'm gettin at is...is it more efficient to have fewer big terraniums or more smaller terraniums?
thanx for the help once again ppl!

no substrate should be a foot deep. 2-4 inches is all u need to get nice fruits. It also is from other factors. (humidity, strain, substrate

My foaf found that about a 3.5 to 4 inch depth is optimal for bulk substrates. When starting out, a few smaller containers is wise. Because - if a contam sets in, you have a chance to isolate it faster, when in a smaller container (removing it from the chamber). After you get the "hang" of it - bigger containers result in better yeilds.
